Default Which Laptop...?

Hi all,
I am looking at getting a windows xp laptop, and was wondering which one i should get. I was looking at a Dell Latitude cos thats what the teachers at my school use, but i made my own on the internet and it came out as $4084! I then looked at the insparon and that came out around $1500. Any other ideas?

Acer makes some quailty labtops... dell is okay when it comes to labtops. Their xps gen 2 or whatever ones, their newests ones, are pretty sweet.

Toshiba, HP, Sony, Acer, Dell and ASUS (especially them) all make very nice and affordable notebooks (depending on specs and model, of course).

Yeh..I wasn't really looking at gaming...but i am looking for something...sort of portable. We do alot of road trips and i wanted something for the car. Battery power is not a problem cos we have a car cigarette lighter charger.
